Automatically activate user after some days

Post by TheoSp » Sat Aug 01, 2020 12:21 pm

Hello,

Is it possible to automatically activate a user with a perticular field value after a certain number of days after registration date?

Thanks,
Theo

It is also possible to develop a PHP CLI (Command Line Interface) script and run it as a cron job once a day.

Thanks for reply.

I have no experience with adding PHP cli and cronjobs in Joomla.
But I will investigate relevant documentation.
Any other suggestions are welcome.
Is there any extension to manage this?
